With some time before I have enough minis and terrain ready for the next new scenario, I thought why not revisit a scenario I liked and wanted to play again with a different strategy and a new houserule to see if it was still fun? Fortunately, Rescue The Baggage proved to be quite exciting and … Continue reading Rescue The Baggage – Second Attempt – Battle Report
We have arrived at the end of the Escape From Goblin Town scenarios! It has been a fun journey thus far and the last scenario presents its fair share of new wrinkles. Perhaps most significantly for me, it gives me a chance to use my favorite Hobbit mini that I’ve painted! After the last battle … Continue reading Wizards in the Dark – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
With only two scenarios left to go, I was hoping the last ones from the Goblin Town box set close things out strongly. This scenario was another intriguing one since the good side is limited to just Gandalf and Bilbo and the goblins not only have their king but Grinnah as well. Did fewer models … Continue reading The Wizard and the Burglar – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
When I started this site, I actually envisioned it more as a WIP blog where I shared painting techniques and hobby progress. I didn’t have enough freetime to maintain it however so that is why the site dropped off in terms of updates, I am starting that side of things back up now because I … Continue reading Goblin Town is Built!
Another week, another battle report! It is kind of cliche for me to say this at this point but I was once again excited to play out this scenario and I was somewhat confident that it would be more fun the previous one. What makes Guard the Crossing exciting is that it is a bit … Continue reading Guard the Crossing – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
Since I performed so poorly in a tactical sense last game, I wanted to give this scenario a second try to see if it was me or the scenario that was the problem! Pre-Game Thoughts – Unlike the previous game, I was going to move aggressively with the dwarves to ensure they got to one … Continue reading Brothers In Arms – Second Attempt – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
This week’s scenario presents something very different. Instead of platforms limiting movement, there was an open board to play on. Knowing that my kitchen table wouldn’t realistically pass for the caves in the Misty Mountains, I decided to order a F.A.T. Mat that fits the Goblin Town aesthetics pretty well. So I’m certainly excited to … Continue reading Brothers In Arms – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
After last week’s game, I have to admit, I was really looking forward to playing the next scenario. I don’t think I’m spoiling much to say that this second scenario had moments of fun and excitement but also did not match the heights of the last scenario. My hope is that this is still a … Continue reading Rescue The Baggage – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
When I first started this site, I intended it to be a WIP blog but I quickly found that I was spreading myself too thin and that I can’t update the site as quickly as I can paint. I also didn’t seem to be getting as much interest as the other places I share my … Continue reading The Breakthrough – Hobbit SBG Battle Report
I have been painting several things recently and making good progress until disaster struck. I had half of the terrain in the Escape From Goblin Town Set painted up and ready to be varnished and when a relatively cool morning presented itself I jumped at the chance to do so. Unfortunately, I oversprayed the terrain … Continue reading Painting Delays and Gloin Joins the Fray!
